Phuket Century Country Club
Area of course is 692,800 Sq.m. Now renamed Loch Palm Golf Club - Conveniently located
in the centre of Phuket Island, Loch Palm is just 15 minutes from the major beach
resort of Patong and 7 km from Phuket Town making it a popular choice for residents
and regular visitors of Phuket alike. Nestled below a range of mountainous peaks,
the course is designed around Crystal Lake, the largest in Phuket covering some 48
acres. Loch Palm has dramatic elevations and drops throughout its layout giving an
opportunity for beginners, average players or professional to test their level of
skill. At 6,555 yards in length, the course is not as long as some but provides an
experience for everyone who loves golf and could be the ideal place to start of your
golf holiday. The front nine winds around Crystal Lake until you reach the turn where
the back nine tracks up into the mountains. From the tee, fairway landing areas are
quite generous but wayward shots will be punished by strategically placed bunkers.
With more than 2,000 palm trees lining the fairways, you are treated to the most
serene atmosphere along with many challenging hazards and greens.

snakes around an enormous lake yet can be reached in one! To achieve it you must
aim 90 degrees right from the tee and be able to carry 240 yards over the water.
